Browsing through the forums and saw some posts talking about promotion lists.  Are those published on a regular basis (once a month/week)? If so, when will the next one be published, and where?
Commendations and promotions are given out at the beginning of the month. The promotion list will be included in the weekly fleet message. The commendation list can be found on the commendation page.
thank you.... i'll keep my eyes peeled for the next message.
The next one won't have it. Only at the beginning of each month.
so i guess the posting the weeklies to the forum too wasn't working out? I just looked in my inbox to see if i still had the december promotions list, but i already trashed it :/...

In regards to that, I would like to propose a suggestion: what i would/could do is post each month as its own thread to the forum first (and then in-game) and just edit the thread later to add in the other weeklies for that month below it since we can edit changes many times on the forum but not so much with the in-game fleet message cooldown. Then we can have the fleet message also reference back to the forum for a copy of the latest news if we delete it from the inbox and later find a need to reference it again...
Honestly I don't have the time, which is usually why I don't update that post. I spend a few minutes sending the message then I need to get off. I do need to make more of an effort of keeping it up to date, because I know some people accidentally delete the message for that week.

Frankly I don't see much purpose in having an archive of all the weekly messages, which is why I've never done it. They don't contain lasting information that we'll need to reference later on. Its info for that week only, anything that needs attention beyond that week is included in the following weeks' messages. I can't recall any instance that we needed to check an earlier week.

Even the promotions are not a big deal. You know if you got a promotion because you know how many commendations you've earned and can see if your fleet rank changed.
